Gallery Talk: Heroes and Villains



Admission actions

Action movies, television, and comic books aren’t the only sources for epic tales of good versus evil. Museum educator Paulina Lopez leads a journey throughout the galleries that explores the fierce battles and cunning characters depicted in artwork from the collection. Join us to examine what we look for in a hero, what we fear about a villain, and how the two may be surprisingly alike.
